The Embera Indians of Panama’s remote southern Darien Province face daunting challenges with respect to safe drinking water. The isolation of their villages – near the Colombian border, with no roads to the outside world – exacerbates their plight. To assist the Embera in their efforts to acquire potable water and the knowledge to obtain it themselves, a team from the USA nonprofit Lifewater International was invited to assess the situation, make recommendations and, if feasible, initiate training for the Embera in well drilling, well completion, and pump installation and repair.

The Integral Basic Sanitation (SABA) Model is a successful experience of coordination between public and private actors for the sustainable management of water and sanitation services in the rural highland of Peru. The innovative management model has been validated in two regions of the country (Cusco in south Perú and Cajamarca in north Perú) over a 15-year period with the active participation and involvement of key water and sanitation actors in the country.
The SABA Model integrates the construction of suitable water supply schemes and the professionalization of water user associations. It includes a consumption based cost recovery system including both operations and maintenance costs. It includes a system of water quality assurance supervised by the health authority. It also includes a sensitization program in schools and among the wider population in order to induce a change in sanitary behaviors with education authority.

The inclusion of strategic guidelines relating to the sustainability of water resources in the adaptation plans, both nationally and locally, will be effective when the community organizational structures (Basin Committees and Service Committees for drinking water and sanitation) are empowered by legal and technical instruments for the conservation, use and management of the existing water resources at international, regional, national and local level; leading to the development of community advocacy processes (from civil society) that are targeted towards decision makers.

Our solution is the incorporation of the SARAR Participatory Education Methodology into the training of human resources and the promotion and structuring of community-based programs. The development of human resources is at the core of sustainable development. People and communities that are empowered with the necessary knowledge and skills will be the architects of their own development and be able to confront a diverse set of challenges in a rapidly changing social, economic and environmental landscape.
